Visit Platform 9 ¾™ at King’s Cross Station

"A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, 11 o’clock. Harry looked behind and saw… the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it. He had done it."

This Harry Potter scene took place in central London. True Potterheads already know that. For those just discovering this treasure trove of a wizarding school, well, you know now. If you check none of the boxes above, but travelling is your beau, King's Cross is for you!

Is King's Cross station included in Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tours?

King's Cross Station isn't actually set up within the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour London itself, but it is a popular departure point for many tours heading to the studios. This is because it's the station featured in the Harry Potter series as the gateway to Platform 9 ¾, where wizards board the Hogwarts Express.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London offers a behind-the-scenes look at the sets, props, and costumes used in the Harry Potter films. While there isn't a physical recreation of King's Cross Station within the tour, there are several nods to the iconic location. For example, visitors can pose for a photo with a luggage trolley disappearing through the wall between platforms 9 and 10, just like Harry did in the first film.
